Effective at ensuring that bacteria doesn’t build up underneath those hard-to-clean surfaces, granite worktops are resilient and an excellent choice for any kitchen, no matter how big or small it is. There are several misconceptions about these surfaces that need to be dispelled; the main one being that investing in black granite worktops will make any cooking space look smaller and cramped. Indeed, this couldn’t be further from the truth. Because many of the materials available are highly reflective and offer a mirrored effect, you could actually get more light into the room than you initially imagined.
Still a bit concerned about opting for a black worktop? Don’t worry; with a wide range of colours guaranteed with all granite surfaces offering durability and a long-lasting solution for your kitchen, the choices really are yours.
So, what can you do to ensure you take all of the precautions necessary to keep your granite worktops looking new for years to come? Firstly, be careful about the cleaning solutions you use. Ideally, such worktops shouldn’t be exposed to artificial UV lighting, nor strong sunlight that might beam in from a nearby window. This will affect the quality of the worktops you invest in.
Don’t worry, though, as this can be easily remedied with the installation of Venetian or roller blinds to your kitchen. This will not only give the room extra style and added ambience, but also keep that granite worktop looking as stunning as the day it was put in.
Cleaning can also ensure your granite worktop stays spotless and blemish free. The following tips will help you give the correct care to the worktop. For example, if you’re contending with a limescale stain, a dash of vinegar onto the target area for no more than 60 seconds will be sufficient. This will ensure there will no longer be any visible limescale. Meanwhile, if you want to bring back the shine of a brand-new worktop, make sure you get a gloss enhancer that has been specially designed for granite surfaces.
Granite worktops possess the winning combination, as they are both practical and pleasing to the eye in equal measure. If you’ve always avoided granite worktops in the past due to fears of it looking cramped or believing it is hard work to keep clean, then you may wish to reconsider and start enjoying the many benefits a beautifully crafted granite worktop could bring.
